Parents always try to give the best of everything to their children since childhood. Starting from buying toys to providing the best education, parents contribute huge, mentally, physically, and financially for their child’s development. Nowadays it has become even more important to educate a girl child so that their voices can also be heard. The Indian Government in support of a girl child’s education has introduced an educational scheme Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana scheme.
Importance of Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme
It is said that a child’s maximum brain development happens from birth till the age of 8, so early education is very important for all the children be it a girl or a boy. But often it is seen that a girl’s education is not given that much importance as of a boy. In remote villages, we still get to see, young girls are being made to marry old men, against their will. It is also observed that in schools among 15 girls only 7-8 girls are attending regular classes, rest are either at home managing the household or either getting forced for a wedding or are not being allowed to attend the school. Experts say that education for girls would definitely create a better society and would maintain a balance as well. They only have the capacity to inherit education among their children, from generation after generation, and make it a priority. India is one of the largest countries in the World, has a very less percentage of the education system for girls even now.
Though there has been quite a development since the past few years, there should be more. Education not only provides outer knowledge but also plays a very important role in shaping a person, building their confidence, making them smarter, and much more. A present notion is always there among our Indian society is that girls are born to get married, manage the kitchen and household, manage their kids and husband, and full stop. The dreams that they have of creating their world are caged day by day. It is also seen that parents in rural areas save money for their girl child’s marriage but not education. But this is not what is supposed to be. If we look at the higher side of the hierarchy, women are more powerful and successful in every sector than men, starting from the former President of India – Pratibha Patil to the famous cricketer Jhulan Goswami to the former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen. We are glad that their parents allowed them to follow their dreams!
